About The Mobile Business Group

Who are we?

The Mobile Business Group is a non-profit fraternal organization of businessmen whose main mission is to promote each member’s business by referrals, sales leads, and/or by doing business with a fellow member. It is also social in nature in that we have social events and/or family outings. The Mobile Business Group is an established fraternal member relationship organization. Only one member is allowed per industry segment and/or type of business. The Mobile Business Group was started in July of 2001.

How often do you meet?

We meet once a week, on Thursdays for a noon luncheon, which is strictly limited to one hour. Members are not allowed to miss more than two consecutive weeks, except under extenuating circumstances.

How do I become a member?

You must first be “cleared” by a trustee member to make sure that your business does not conflict with another member’s business. Then you must be sponsored by a member in good standing and come as his guest for two consecutive weeks to meet the other members and to make sure the club is something you would have interest in being a part of. Then you must make application and be approved by the Board of Directors. There is a $25 non-refundable application fee.

How much are dues?

Currently the dues are $180.00 per quarter, which includes your lunch each week.

What do you do at the noon luncheon?

First we welcome new members and guest, then we have what we call an “introduction & thank you” session where fellow members introduce themselves and their guest then thank each other for business leads and/or referrals that were generated within the club. Occasionally we have a speaker on some current event (sports, political, financial, etc.). The luncheon is strictly limited to one hour.
